2022 Ford Puma ST Gold Edition verdict and specs
Ford has let its social media followers design and name the limited run Puma ST Gold Edition. It might have gold wheels and a racing stripe, but is it really worth the extra money? We find out...
Thanks to its underpinnings, the Ford Puma ST Gold Edition is one of the most exciting and enjoyable sports SUVs you can buy. At the same time, it’s hard to ignore the fact that it’s effectively just a well-dressed version of the standard Puma ST that’s been equipped with the ST Performance pack.
As such, whether the Puma ST Gold Edition is worth your money depends entirely on what’s important to you. If you just want a sports SUV that’s good to drive, we’d suggest sticking to the standard Puma ST. You can still buy those new, so that option also affords you the ability to design the exact Puma ST you want, adding any optional extras that you see fit.
If, however, you like the idea of having a version of the Ford Puma ST that only 998 other people will have, the Gold Edition is the one for you. You’ll have to search the classifieds to find one and you won’t be adding any of your own options but, at the time of writing, it doesn’t look like the Gold Edition and all its special extras will set you back much more than a new Puma ST.
